We asked you to spend the day in bed for seriously ill children and you didn’t disappoint! Nearly 1.5 million fans tuned in from around the world to watch their favorite artists, like Ed Sheeran, Nick Jonas, Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band, Frank Iero, and Shinedown, play from bed. Together on #GivingTuesday we raised $65,000 to bring the healing power of music to hospitalized kids across the country. Thank you! This puts us well on the way to achieving our $100,000 Bedstock goal before year end.
Now it’s time to add your voice to Bedstock by taking the #BedstockChallenge. Hop in bed, sing a song and help us raise money for our music program through the end of December. We’ve already had over 1000 people create, share, and challenge their friends with #BedstockChallenge videos. Not a singer? Not a problem. Hum a snippet, sing along to your playlist, or join writers like Carson Ellis, Kay Haring, and Chuck Palahniuk in reading your favorite children’s book from bed.
Need some inspiration? Head over to Bedstock.com for in-bed performances from 130 bands and the real-time #BedstockChallenge social feed. Also, don’t forget to see your generous support in action, check out the Kids Stage for beautiful in-hospital performances from MyMusicRx kids.
It’s not too late to donate. Help us hit our $100,000 goal before the end of the year and thanks for believing in the healing power of music.
